of these countries. >> o'donnell: do you think if the obama put too much trust in the new iranian regime? >> look, i think the president and i share the goal of making sure that iran doesn't have nuclear weapons. i think where we might have a difference of opinion is on how to prevent it. i think that what has been built up over time, sure the iranians built the program over time but international community led by the united states, has built up a census program that has been very effective. and it got iran to come to the table. now what is happening is that for effectively nothing, or virtually no consections iran gets to keep its nuclear capabilities, that is the capabilities that enable it to manufacture the material for nuclear bombs. i think the other aspects of metallurgy, that is not in the deal that's another component of making the bomb.they get to keep all that. and at the same time the international community takes the one effective thing which has been the sanctions regime and they reverse direction. they begin to legitimize iran as having these capabilities, that's a bad thing. but they

,, >> what he hoped would be signature achievement called is called obama care has nothing short of it's almost become a parody of the government can't seem to do anything right. you have held a variety of posts, committee chairman in congress, two cabinet posts, white house chief of staff. if you were on the president's staff right now what would you advise him to do? >> i think the most important thing some of the steps that he's taken to acknowledge the mistakes that were made to apologize for them. to make clear that he's going to do everything possible to fix the website so that it works. i think it's really important, at least in my own experience, that you cannot rely on the bureaucracys to do this kind of work. i mean, they're good people, they're dedicated but very frankly they're not the ones that really have the capabilities to in fact get this done. so, i would drive this out of the white house, i would have an ongoing task force, i'd have one person in charge of it and i would meet every day to make sure that they're getting this straight. because i think the presid

minimum requirement of obama care including ones before march of 2010 which is where they're trying to draw this line now. those plans also have to -- bob job, what happens sneer are they going to have to post bone? you have a deadline where people don't get their health insurance by certain time they're going to fined. but of a website that they can't get on to get their health care. >> so the problem is there could have been -- there could be some delays in different ways to delay it but the problem with delay is that while it might help out those people who are desperate to get on to the obamacare program, the insurance companies don't want that because they want mechanism to force people to sign up. because of these risk pools. they need lots ever healthy people getting these risk pools to keep the prices down. you want some things to force people in if you elongate the period that they can come in or take away the fine for not signing it up reduces the appreciate that you are creates a policy problem. what you have now you have some political problems and some bad pr problems b

question about the rollout of obama care. you came down very hard on hhs, dr. sebelius when she came before congress last week. you said that what disturbed you most of all was that people were feeding in to this website vital information about themselves. you were very concerned about the security of that information that it was now just out there for people to take. are you satisfied yet that this has been corrected or will be corrected? >> well, no. what was really shocking to me is even by their own words they admitted that there was a high degree of risk when they were offering the website to go public, they never told anybody about that. they said that they think the risk was acceptable. their information wasn't at risk, american people's information was at risk. they're trying to change a tire on a car going 75 miles an hour down the expressway. that is not the way cybersecurity works. and unfortunately both diane and i both know the real threats to these systems when you have nation states, organized crime groups and criminals trying to get information that is now available on thes

restrictions on the centrifuges which are critical. >> president obama said israel and saudi arabia have right to be skeptical, are you skeptical that iran will comply with the deal they just signed? >> i think everybody has a right to be skeptical. because there are indications that there are people in iran who have wanted to pursue a weapons program that there have been secret facilities building some of those efforts towards that program and so there's lots of reason. that's why we don't take anything at face value. >> you don't the people you just signed a deal with? >> we did arms control agreements with great enemy the soviet union. we've done arms control agreements in other parts of the world. you don't trust, it's not based on trust. it's based on verification. it's based on your ability to know what is happening. so you don't have to trust the people you're dealing with. you have to have a mechanism put in place where by you know exactly what you're getting and you know exactly what they're doing. and we believe we're at the beginning of putting that in place with iran. >> stood up t

this week, there's a security deal with afghanistan one of the promises in tuwaitha senator obama made get us out of the of those two wars and negotiate with iran and some of america's enemies. we're seeing that come to fruition. though the president is taking some pounding on the domestic front he is still adding influence that goes all the way back to the things he said in his exam pain in 2008. >> schieffer: david, you think that this -- we heard steny hoyer pass different sanctions, he's saying that he would like to see the senate go ahead do this but put in proviso that they won't go in to affect for six months. do you think it will than easy? >> i don't think so it will than easy. i expect in the end they will probably let the president play out. the gamble is exactly what him and john were discussing. the two options here, bob, are to relax the sanctions a bit and hope that it creates enough of a hunger inside iran that there's appetite for more sanctions relief which are only going to get by dismantling part of the system. versus the approach that you see from mr. netanyahu. which
